The year’s event saw some elite performances from artistes such as Sefa, Samini, Hajia4Reall (Mona4Reall), Kelvyn Boy, Reggie Rockstone, Tic,  among others on Saturday night 29, October 2022 held at Royal Regency.

There were some other winners at that night includes Akwaaboah, Mona 4Reall, Celestine Donkor, Diana Hamilton, King Promise, Stonebwoy, Sarkodie, KiDi, Camidoh, among others 

However, Black Sherif beat with the likes of Kuami Eugene, KiDi, King Promise, and Diana Hamilton to win the Artiste of the Year category at the recently ended Ghana Music Awards UK 2022. 

The talented rapper was nominated for seven categories at this year’s ceremony, including “Hiplife/Hip Hop Artiste of the Year,” “Hiplife/Hip Hop Song of the Year,” “New Artiste of the Year,” “Most Popular Song of the Year,” and “Artiste of the Year.” Kuami Eugene and KiDi are tied for second place with six nominations each. However, in addition to King Promise, Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, and Diana Hamilton, all three musicians were nominated for the “Artist of the Year shortlist.”

Black Sherif has tremendously done well and continues to do well after breaking through the Ghana music scene in 2019 when he first dazzled fans and music lovers with First Sermon song but never stopped showcasing his talent by giving out hit after hit on records on his debut album dubbed “The Villain I Never Was.”

Congrats to Black Sherif for wining 4 awards including the ultimate prize “Artiste Of The Year”  New Artist, Most Popular Song and Hiplife Song at this year’s sixth edition of Ghana Music Awards UK.
